One percent of giant stars in the universe are lithium-dense, but how they create their lithium remains a mystery.
Deep sea mining shouldn't begin before full assessment of environment impacts are made, says Ocean Panel report
Seafloor nodules contain battery metals needed to fuel the transition to clean energy, but trawling for them can disrupt ecosystems that we don't know about.
In 2018, about 100,000 metric tons of lithium-ion batteries were recycled globally.
Evolution of lithium has been a key component in the study of evolution of the universe and stars
In North Carolina, Nevada and other states, miners are working to revive the US lithium industry, once the world’s largest until it fell off in the 1990s.
